Equipment used in Bungee Jumping

A bungee jump almost entirely consists of an elastic rope, which is actually a braided shock cord, tied to the ankle of the jumper. Most bungee cords are made from natural rubber (used due to its elasticity). Two types of harness are used for a bungee jump – a leg harness, which is joined to the cord, and a body harness (back-up for the ankle attachment, for safety purposes).

Depending on the height jumped, and also the difficulty of the jump, each bungee operation would have different minimum requirements.
